Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

Weather: As winter tightens its grip, yesterday witnessed minimum temperatures ranging from 4°C to 8°C across significant parts of Punjab, Haryana-Chandigarh-Delhi, and extending into Uttar Pradesh, northwest Rajasthan, East Madhya Pradesh, north Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, & west Bihar. This temperature dip has sparked meteorological interest and raised concerns, prompting a closer look at the prevailing weather systems and forecasts for the coming days.

Weather Systems and Forecast:

A key player in the current weather scenario is the Cyclonic Circulation situated over Lakshadweep and its neighboring areas, extending up to the middle tropospheric levels. This atmospheric phenomenon has set the stage for various weather conditions across the region.

Looking ahead, the forecast indicates light to moderate rainfall with thunderstorms and lightning likely over Lakshadweep on 20th December 2023. However, these conditions are expected to decrease significantly thereafter. Fortunately, no significant weather is anticipated over the remaining parts of the country during the next 5 days.

Dense Fog and Cold Wave Warnings:

Residents in certain areas need to brace themselves for challenging weather conditions. Dense fog warnings have been issued, with isolated pockets likely to experience reduced visibility. Punjab and Haryana can expect dense fog over the next 5 days, while northwest Uttar Pradesh is likely to face this condition for the next 2 days. Additionally, Assam & Meghalaya and Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram & Tripura should anticipate dense fog during the morning hours of 20th December 2023.

In terms of cold waves, Punjab is under a warning for cold wave conditions on 20th December 2023. This adds an extra layer of caution for residents to take necessary precautions.

Minimum Temperatures Forecast:

The mercury is expected to remain fairly consistent over the northern parts of the country in the coming 4-5 days. No significant changes in minimum temperatures are anticipated, providing a stable outlook for the region.

During the winter season, staying informed about the current weather conditions and forecasts becomes crucial. The recent dip in temperatures, coupled with warnings of dense fog and cold waves, emphasizes the need for residents in affected areas to be vigilant and prepared. Meteorologists will closely monitor the evolving weather systems, providing timely updates to ensure the safety and well-being of the populace.
